The State Department v. Israel's Jewish identity

I wrote a couple of times last month about a State Department report that criticized freedom of religion for Jews(!) in Israel. The main conclusion that can be drawn from that report is that the State Department has concluded that Israel is too Jewish.

Well give them credit. The State Department is putting its money where its mouth is, and those of you who are American taxpayers are paying for an effort to make Israel less Jewish.
The American State Department gave $770,000 in grants to Merchavim, an Israeli organization working to weaken the character of the Jewish state under the guise of "promoting diversity" and "shared citizenship" in Israel.

Most of the grant, some $750,000, will go to expand the collaboration between Merchavim and the American nonprofit Sesame Workshop, producer of the Sesame Street program, to continue to produce Israel’s version of the show, "Rechov Sumsum," which features both Jews and Arabs as characters. The grant will reportedly be used to develop content in Hebrew and Arabic for use by 1,200 kindergarten teachers in order to indoctrinate children away from Jewish national sentiment.
What could go wrong?

I wonder if that's where Zorchronot had been receiving the funding for its glossy online book in English, Arabic and Hebrew outlining ways Israel can be dismantled through the Right Of Return.

What could go wrong indeed

That's liberalism at work for you.
